It occurs to me that Obamacare is one of the few liberal policies that gives the Republicans the chance to highlight sob stories from ordinary people. Liberals think they own that approach, and so they find it hard to believe that the anti-Obamacare forces have successfully used it. After all, the Republicans are supposed to be the meanies and the Democrats the compassionate ones.
The left keeps trying to find success stories to counter this. I have no doubt there are such stories, and that there will be more of them to come as Obamacare goes forward. But the left may be discovering that a sad story gets more attention than a happy one.
Especially when there are so many sad stories, some of them coming from Democrats.
